James Reimer is the FUTURE

They call him Optimus Reim. The name definitely suits him. The Maple Leaf rookie goaltender just got his 16th win of the year, along with his 3rd shutout. He has been the one glimmer of hope in the Leafs playoff push. With 8 games remaining in the season sitting 5 points out of the playoffs, the Leafs truly can’t afford to lose any games. I saw the strangest coaching decision happen last week when Ron Wilson opted to play JS Giguere against the Florida Panthers instead of Reimer. Reimer in fact didn’t even dress that game. We lost 3-0 to Florida in a must-win game where we desperately needed those 2 points. Hopefully it doesn’t come back to haunt us. We can only look to the future now, and the final 8 games. GO LEAFS GO

Check out this HUGE save by Reimer followed by the Air Canada Centre chant of REIMER, REIMER, REIMER!

Gank Leafs win 4 in a row, Wilson wins 600th

The Toronto Maple Leafs continued their domination of the west coast with a huge win tonight over the San Jose Sharks. After coming off a win last night against the Los Angeles Kings, the Leafs again were firing on all lines. The man of the game was again James Reimer, the AHL goaltender the Leafs called up and who has since gone 4-0. Reimer stopped 40 of 42 shots to keep the Leafs in the game. The leafs managed to kill off all 5 of the penalties they recieved and Kessel scored a notable highlight reel goal. This win also came as the 600th career victory for coach Ron Wilson, getting it against the team that fired him.

Reimer is set to go back to the Marlies in the AHL this Thursday, but I say keep him until the wins stop! Toronto ends their West coast road-trip in Phoenix this Thursday.
